I invest in my students to facilitate their investment in themselves. I encourage a growth mindset; (taking) ownership of material; and feedback which is clear, concise but detailed, and candid but respectful of students' autonomy, dignity, and integrity. I firmly believe that education is critical to human maturity and am passionate about helping my students to see what is at stake - for us as human - in the humanities and social sciences.

My primary academic background is in philosophy and political science. I majored in the latter and minored in the former at UVA (B.A., 2010). I then went to Columbia, receiving an (M.A., 2012) and an (M.Phil., 2014) in philosophy. My scholarly interests in these fields include: 19th- and 20th-century European philosophy; moral and political philosophy; and American constitutional law and theory. And as a PhD student, I served as teaching assistant for or taught numerous courses in these fields.

While at Virginia, I also took numerous advanced courses in the humanities broadly, with an emphasis on history and literature.

I work with students in the following subjects, arranged in descending order of focus and interest: SAT Reading and Writing & Language prep; AP US History; most college-level philosophy courses and some college-level political science, mainly political theory and American Politics; AP US Government; AP European History; AP English Language & AP English Literature; and general high school English and US History.

Hobbies

I’m usually looking at a book or, sub-optimally, a screen. When not, I enjoy cycling around Brooklyn (and occasionally Manhattan); exploring the city's many beautiful places, especially the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Central Park, Greenwood Cemetery, and Prospect Park; and relaxing with my two cats, Snowball and Teddy.
